Reviews - What do our customers think?
Essential resource  Mar 8, 2008
This book presents a simple, friendly clinical resource that is helpful to therapists and as bibliotherapy for clients who are dealing with abuse.
Not what I thought it was  Feb 8, 2008
This is a tiny little book with lots of pictures and very little substance to it. It's designed to ask questions of the reader and point out certain behaviors, and that's it. I didn't find the information in it very useful, but since I do volunteer work with children I decided to keep in around to refer to from time to time. I didn't find it to be a book for adults at all. My advice is don't waste your money.
Good introduction  Sep 15, 2007
I agree with some of the other reviewers that this book is very simplified, but keep in mind too that the author's stated purpose is not to provide an exhaustive overview of childhood abuse and techniques of dealing with it. She says in the first chapter, "This book has more questions than answers. I ask the reader to explore slowly the issues of abuse in the past. Seek help from friends, relatives, or counselors in order to fully understand the abuse, to put it in perspective, and to move on the a healthier way of relating in the world." To this end, I think Dr. Gil was successful, and I could see how some survivors of child abuse would find this book helpful as a complement to therapy. But I agree with another reviewer that if you are at the point of seeking out a self-help book on surviving child abuse, you are probably already convinced that you underwent some form of it and are now most interested, and would most benefit by, specific advice or techniques to help you cope. As a survivor myself, the most interesting lesson I took away from this book was the theme of extremes playing a prevalent role in the life of an adult survivor of abuse. The brief descriptions of the different reactions/roles that adult survivors take on almost always point out that those reactions lie in one extreme or the other. The paradigm "all things in moderation" has been reinforced in my life after reading this book, which is indeed an important lesson but one that I already knew anyway. If you are struggling with this issue I can't say I wouldn't recommend the book, but only as a supplement to therapy or other, more exhaustive books.
good book for my clients  May 27, 2007
This is a book I give to clients who have past molest or abuse history. Eliana Gil has a beautiful and succinct way of explaining the "side effects" of such abuse - how it reveals itself in every realionship and how it is so disabling to it's victim. The best part is that it's easy to read and small in length making it a good book to give clients.
Outgrowing the pain  Mar 21, 2007
This is an excellent book for adults and possibly teens who were abused as children. The book is an easy read and the illustrations are a plus for those visual learners. I use this book on a regular basis with my clients especially women, who have been diagnosed with PTSD. My clients tell me this book is very helpful for them and easy for them to identify with. I would recommend using this book to others as either a self help or part of mental health therapy.
